Year ago, I was honored. That's why my husband avoided a great mistake. And that's why yesterday I brought home 7 kilos of wood.

I - me - my - RedWine. True story

Did the giver give you the cat as an expression of reward/thank you?

Because it was an expensive cat and you would not be able to afford it yourself?

Is it relevant what exactly you do for the kids?

Was the kid (of the giver) alive when you got the cat?

Ok, about the "great mistake":

Do you mean a "grave mistake" (possibly a translation idiom)?

Did your husband avoid this mistake after you were honored? because you were honored?
Did the mistake he avoided have anything to do with the cat?

Did the recognition you received take place in a Roman Catholic church? Was your husband present?

Alhucema:
Did the giver give you the cat as an expression of reward/thank you? No.

Because it was an expensive cat and you would not be able to afford it yourself? No. The giver found a cat and looked for the home for it.

Is it relevant what exactly you do for the kids? I am a scout leader, not so much relevant.

Was the kid (of the giver) alive when you got the cat? Yes.

Beachbum:
Ok, about the "great mistake":

Do you mean a "grave mistake" (possibly a translation idiom)? Checked in a dictionary and I think the answer is "yes". I meant a mistake that could have had very unpleasant consequences.

Did your husband avoid this mistake after you were honored? Yes. because you were honored? No. If I were honored and not got the cat, he could have still committed the mistake.
Did the mistake he avoided have anything to do with the cat? No.

Did the recognition you received take place in a Roman Catholic church? Yes. Was your husband present? Yes, but irrelevant.

Grave mistake: financial? Work-related? Home-related? Marriage-related? Friendship-related? Would the mistake be a crime? Could he have committed the mistake, if you'd gotten the cat for a different reason? If you'd gotten a different cat?

No. Could he have committed the mistake, if you'd gotten the cat for a different reason? Yes. If you'd gotten a different cat? Possibly, but we like to say that our cat is special because of that situation.

The mistake: quit a job? Not quit a job? Taken a promotion? Not taken a promotion? Taken a transfer? Not taken a transfer? Gotten fired? Taken a job offer? Rejected a job offer? Was the mistake active (he had to actively do something)? Passive (he had to refrain from doing something)? Is his profession relevant?

Was it a bad job? Bad pay? Long/difficult commute? Did something bad happen to the person that took the job instead? To the entire job site? Company? Relevant what he would've been working with? Is a scandal relevant? Relevant what he did instead of taking this job?

Please correct the following:

You are in a scout organization. You were honored (as in being given a big round of applause or a prize, or a standing ovation) for someting you did as leader. You mainly deal with children, and one of the parents (of the children you are working with), gave you a cat about two weeks after this. The giver is an atheist. Because of the event && the cat-award(or due to it), your husband avoided doing the job-related mistake. Correct?

Did you know the giver previously? Was the gift intended as an appreciation for what you did? Is the cat black? Relevant? Was your husband so fond of the cat that he decided not to take the job in order to be closer to her? Are your husband's religious inclinations relevant? (catholic vs non-catholic, christian vs non-christian, church-goer vs non-church-goer)?

would the job-related mistake have involved moving house? or leaving the cat alone for long periods?

if you hadn't been honored - or at the event where you were honoured - would you have come into contact with the cat-giver? did you already know that person? did you discuss the availability of the cat at the event? was the event cat-related?

Trying to determine the way you were honored: Were you given a medal? A promotion? The honor of reading in the church a fragment from the Bible (I don't know exactly how this works, but my wife who is both a catholic and a former "capo" says that this might happen : - ) )
Were you honored by someone in the church (a priest, etc), or by the kids you're working with? Or maybe it was another event (like your birthday), and they made a surprise by coming over?

Do we need to know, in order to find out how you're honored, some specific details of catholic rituals (like the first communion)? Not knowing too much about this, some random shots - are any of these relevant: the age of the kid surprising you? his nationality? the fact that the parent was an atheist? (could it have worked as well with a catholic? with a jew?) Did you thank the kid (for the surprise he has made to you - maybe by surprising him as well), that in response his parent gave you the cat?

But the event that took place in the church was the relevant ritual AND the first communion.? Not knowing too much about this, some random shots - are any of these relevant: the age of the kid surprising you? YES. his nationality? No. the fact that the parent was an atheist? YES. (could it have worked as well with a catholic? No. with a jew? Could be.

No, the cat issue was more coincidential than that.

RECAP & some hints:
I was honored by one of the kids I take care of as scout leader. The honor was surprise to me. I was honored because of my overall activity as scout leader. Because of having been honored, I took part in a catholic ritual that - in that case - took place immediately before child's first communion. I was not the main actor in the ritual. The honor is connected with religious issues and the ritual.
Then something else happened, that is relevant to the story.
Because all of that, the kid's mother gave me the cat. I never had a cat before.
Later, the cat did something that resulted in avoiding the bad job by my husband.
It is relevant to the story that child's parents were atheists. Discovering child's age may be helpful. I knew the child's parents before, but...

Did you get the cat because you contributed to the son becoming religious? Did the parents stay atheists? Were they happy that he became christian? Upset? Indifferent? Did they think you were a good influence? That you turned his life around? Did they give you the cat as a form of reward? Did they need someone good to look after the cat, and chose you because of this? Were they present when you were honored?

Did you get to perform some function at the baptism? Did you become his godparent?

Chan of events, as far as I can see:
Volunteer work (scouts)+Catholicism->Atheist kid converts to Catholicism->gets baptized->you're honored->you visit him and his parents->You see adorable surplus cat/kitten and convert to Caticism->you're given the cat->cat destroys your hubby's bad job contract+you buy wood-based cat litter.
Is that it?

Did you get to perform some function at the baptism? Yes and... Did you become his godparent? Yes!

Chan of events, as far as I can see: Absolutely corrrect.
Volunteer work (scouts)+Catholicism->Atheist kid converts to Catholicism->gets baptized->you're honored->you visit him and his parents->You see adorable surplus cat/kitten and convert to Caticism->you're given the cat->cat destroys your hubby's bad job contract+you buy wood-based cat litter.
Is that it? Yes it is.

********SPOILER************
Last year I was asked to become a godmother of an atheist boy who was in my scout troop. I regarded it as great honor and appreciation to my volunteer work. After the baptism ceremony, I took part in a small reception at the child's home. There was a 3-4 month kitten that was found recently by the kid's mother. They offered me the kitten but I did not want it, being afraid of and not fond of cats. Then, on the reception, kitten jumped onto my knees and went asleep, what was totally adorable. Within a week, I took the cat.
Some time later, the cat destroyed my husband's bad job contract, therefore saving him from grave mistake. And because I have to take care of the cat, I bought wood-based cat litter the day before posting the puzzle.
And the cat is proud of being the protagonist of a puzzle :-)


Thanks for playing and congrats to Galfisk :-)

So he converted, and you converted too - to being a cat person!
What did you name the cat? I think Epiphany would be a good name.
Or maybe Damascus, as in "road to," "Dam" for short. You'll want to call it that sometimes, and I speak as a life-long cat person.

It already had the name, given by the boy's family: Rademenes. It was the name of a cat in Polish TV series for children - the cat did magic and made wishes come true.
